Tiger Wood’s live press conference at the PGA Tour Headquarters this morning was a truly viral event. The world’s best golfer has been in the midst of gossip and scandal since November 27th 2009, and for the first time since, publicly addressed those issues.
Traditional and online publishers publicized the event heavily–on Livestream alone over 10 news organizations made the pool feed available to their communities (see our homepage’s screenshot below!). Among them, Associated Press Live (aplive), USA Today (usa_today1) and Canadian broadcaster Global TV (globalnewsnow) streamed on Livestream.com, embedded on their websites and Facebook, and utilized Livestream’s integrated Facebook and Twitter chats.
Watch the recording of the event on AP Live’s channel:
And here are a few screenshots from the event:
President Obama’s appointee to the Supreme Court Sonia Sotomayor is facing the Senate this week for her approval hearings.
C-SPAN is offering a 4 camera live coverage from the court room allowing each user switch pick their angle. The multi-channel player with refreshing live thumbnails of the streams was developed in 2 days using the power of the soon to be launched Livestream API.
C-SPAN has previously used Livestream to cover the 2009 US elections, broadcasting debates and election-related events through the “C-SPAN Debate Cam“. They also provided one of the most in-depth online coverages of Inauguration Day, as President Obama was taking his oath of office.
